James Van Der Beek is playing Diplo in Viceland’s EDM parody show, What Would Diplo Do? The series will debut on August 3, 2017, which means Van Der Beek has already spent a considerable amount of time acting as the famed DJ.
Interestingly enough, he appeared at one of Diplo’s shows sporting a “Decent” hat and confused a bunch of people. Even show director Brandon Dermer thought it was pretty hilarious.
“The funny thing is half the people were like, ‘James Van Der Beek?’ and the other people–you know, it was dark out, I’m sure some people were intoxicated,” Dermer said.
“He’s wearing a shirt that says ‘Diplo’ on the back, he’s got the hat,” he added. “Some people were coming up, ‘Dude, I saw you in Vegas last month, you were great!'”
